I mean, the draw against Bologna was bad, but really?

The brass at Milan have reportedly given Gennaro Gattuso three games to save his job.

The three games are against Fiorentina, SPAL, and Frosinone, with two of those games probably seen as matches that Milan should win. If there is any dip in form, Arsene Wenger and Roberto Donadoni are reportedly options to take over for Gattuso.

Is this true? Who knows. Casa Milan can sometimes leak like a sieve, so this could all be true, but then again, these “ultimatums” are usually rubbish.

Anyway, the pressure is on Gattuso, which of course it is.

On to the links.
